Smoke Notes

Impressive selection of music on this double-CD mix collection by one half of Global Communications and Jedi Knights, Tom Middleton. Hes basically gone for a 2 Many DJs meets Gilles Peterson vibe here, using technology to mix several disparate music elements together, but instead of the up-tempo, hard-hitting 2 Many DJs sound, hes gone for a funk and soul-based sound mainly, with dips into soundtracks, off-kilter cover versions, and hip-hop and breakbeat elements. The first disc is more on an "up" tip, with 27 tracks ranging from James Brown, The Tom Tom Club, Pigbag, Level 42 and The Pointer Sisters to covers of Roxanne, Pastime Paradise and Mony Mony. Like I said, theyre disparate elements, but hes fitted them together well, using similar or same musical keys to glue everything. Disc two is more chill, with some covers of classic movie music like Windmills of Your Mind from The Thomas Crown Affair and On A Clear Day You Can See Forever (from the Barbara Streisand movie of the same name), alongside current fare from Ulrich Schnauss, Shur-I-Kan, Middletons own AMBA project and Ramsey Lewis. The sequencing of Common, The Style Council and Ramp together is a goodie too. In all, its a great effort and a lot of time and care has obviously gone into this, resulting in a great listening experience though, and one which will really come into its own this coming summer I think, far moreso than any generic chill out compilation would anyway. Recommended.
